L.A. Marathon: Families raise money for homeless children
Running for their grass-roots organization Dads for Charity, the team was riddled with injuries ahead of Sunday’s L.A. Marathon. Only Edward Nuki and Brian Clark, both 45, were able to participate.
Standing near the intersection of Hollywood Boulevard and Highland Avenue, Nuki and Clark’s families came out to cheer them on.
The screams were deafening.
Edward surprised all of them, stopped running and gave his son Kai, 8, a hug and a kiss and told him he loved him.
"He's never stopped before," his wife said.
Then again, the team has never attempted a full marathon before.
Up next was Edward Clark. His wife spotted him first, then his daughter Maya, 8.
"Go daddy go! Go daddy go!" she yelled.
Edward stopped too, picked up Maya and gave her a kiss. She was still giddy when he ran off.
